DETROIT (AP) - Derek Jeter and Mike Modano were in Detroit for Friday night’s induction ceremony for the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame.

Jeter and Modano were part of last year’s class but were unable to attend their ceremony, so they came this year. The 2016 class includes former Detroit Pistons star Ben Wallace, former Detroit Red Wings Brendan Shanahan and Chris Osgood, former University of Detroit and Detroit Pistons standout John Long, former Detroit Lion Robert “Bob” Mann, former Flint Powers High School basketball coach Kathy McGee, Oakland University swimming coach Pete Hovland and baseball writer Tom Gage.

Jeter went to high school in Kalamazoo before becoming a star for the New York Yankees. Modano was born in Livonia and went on to a Hall of Fame hockey career.
